Sausage and potatoes in tomato sauce

Pragmatic recipe
sausage and potatoes in tomato sauce

Sausage delight

This interesting recipe was passed on by our dear friend Vittoria. It is indeed a dish that amazes guests and pleases the family. Much rather than settling for the first salsiccia you find, make it yourself. Good sausage should be pure pork. And contain fennel seeds. So here we go; thanks again Vic!

Sausage and potatoes are meant to be together. The tomato sauce is a happy third party. This dish comes with bread. If only to mop up some of the sauce. A recipe that is high on the request list for Sunday lunches.An Italian meal must have pasta though. So some of the sauce comes with pasta. The meat and potatoes serve as 'secondo', the main dish.Do not cut the salsiccia up before serving. That way the sausage remains soft and juicy. And do not add any spices or herbs. What shall you drink with this dish? A full bodied red wine. The slopes of Mount Etna hosts many nice wineries. We would advice a Croceferro by Generazione Alessandro. Success guaranteed.
